As the new school year approaches and I prepare to return to my classroom, I am madly updating my student reading lists and recommendations. I love to read YA and children’s fiction but even moreso I love to find that book that makes my students’ eyes light up with excitement when they talk about it. And finding that book that connects with a reluctant reader? Nothing like it.
My students love to share their favourites with me also, so starting Monday I will be passing on my finds and reviewing books with a focus on the classroom and specific age groups.
I’m also looking for new books to share with my students, so all you parents and teachers out there, send me your favourites. Any genre, recent or classic, with a note about why you love it.
